Oku-Aizu Valley Ś••šľöśī•

Rural Northeastern Japan in Fukushima

Okuaizu is located in the southwest of Fukushima prefecture, bordering those of Niigata, Gunma and Tochigi. It is actually a name given to a set of seven villages: Yanaizu, Mishima, Kaneyama, Showa, Tadami and Minami-Aizu and Hinoemata which extend into the valleys of the Tadami and Ina rivers.

Tadami

 

Tadami City is surrounded by mountains around 1,000 meters high, such as Aizu Asahidake and Asakuradake, and bordered by a fantastic natural environment, listed as a UNESCO Natural Heritage Site in 2014.

Tadami is locally famous for its snow festival, the "Tadami Furusato Snow Festival" where huge sculptures and replica monuments are created in the heavy snow that falls there in winter.
